Major Heyward: Well that’s the devil you know, what about the devil you don’t know but think you do?
Hawkeye: I’ve known Chingachgook since we both were young. I knew Uncas’ mother. I’ve known Uncas since he was born. Major Heyward. I don’t know you. If we have to fight back to back, it’s possible that you might run. I don’t think you will, but you might. I’ve fought back to back with these Mohicans father and son, and they didn’t run

If there is one thing in life that I have been blessed with its been an ability to make friends and keep them. I have met a plethora of people who have treated me very well and have come through for me when the chips are down.
One of these people is Robert Stacy McCain.
I’ve eaten with him, traveled with him, reported with him, he has slept in my house I have slept in his, we have shared long road trips, tight situations and the only car chase I’ve ever been involved in.
He was the first man to wear one of my fedoras, it was he who got me on the Tea Party Express bus, it was he who helped me raise the money for my first CPAC and it is he who has been at my side.
I would trust him with my life, and the lives of my family and that is something a Sicilian does not say lightly
Stacy McCain is also fiercely loyal to his friends, and because of his unbending loyalty to one of them who has stood by his side he has gotten some grief.
Stacy is a grown man who can fight his own battles I’ve stayed out of it, but now the question has been called before me and I can not in honor stay silent.
Stacy, described as an “Elitist”? I’m sorry that’s funny.
There are many adjectives that people might use to describe Stacy, when behind the wheel said adjectives might become increasingly colorful but elitist, “Elitist?” Really?
Now I like Jerry from Goldfish and Clowns he’s been on the show and we’ve talked a bit, I’ve met Larry Sinclar and we’ve had a few pleasant conversations on the phone. I’ve spoken on the phone to Paul Lemmen, I fully intend after the election to book him to promote his book and he has graciously offered to try to promote the radio show. I don’t intend to discard any of these people nor does anything I’ve said or will say imply their inquiries on certain subjects are not legit, I’ve posed some of those same questions myself. The net is a big place if people want to make their cases to the masses they have the perfect right to do so and if they can sell said case, fine, that’s how it works. May the best argument win.
But in a fight with Stacy McCain there is only one side I can take, in fact how dishonorable, how unworthy would I be if during the week where I had my most positive national exposure EVAH I turned my back on my closest friend on the net in his hour of need?
Stacy is the best reporter I’ve ever met, period! He had done the best shoe leather reporting I’ve ever seen, period! He has done the most when it comes to raw footwork to advance conservationism that I’ve seen, period!
But most important Robert Stacy McCain is my friend. He is my friend now and will be till the day I die and I will stand by his side PERIOD!
That is all.
